Jarrad Hoeata banned for 6 weeks after red card high shot on Rob Kearney

I don't like to see the idiocy afters.... The bloke gave a high tackle and immediately looked to shelter/support Kearney and check he was ok, to go in and:

A) 'Attack' a bloke on the ground *full stop*
B) 'Attack' a bloke on the ground who isn't actually attacking your team mate.
C) Pull the guy off your team mate...but actually pull him ON to your team mate..

...is all a little bit moronic!

6 weeks may seem harsh, but actually as the commentators say, there was sort of never any other outcome from the very start... it didn't look like he was ever going anywhere but the head... Kearneys body position didn't appear to change i.e. he didn't duck, Hoeta wasn't wrong footed...it all looks very strange...

Bakkies Botha not too concerned about horrible fractured finger

It's pathetic really.

Also Botha earning £389,000 a year, sounds a little like peanuts... in some respects.. don't get me wrong, I'd be over the moon if I was earning that much (and playing rugby to do it!)

...Also I think most rugby players have it very tough, not exactly like you can get modelling/advertising contracts as much as the footballers get - (especially if you're a hand model!)

Bakkies Botha not too concerned about horrible fractured finger

That looks pretty damn gross, I don't think mine was as bad (although I also had ligament damage), only thing I can say was that it didn't hurt at all...just the angle was perhaps a bit inconvenient... made me feel a bit light headed looking at it going the wrong way but as for pain, there really was none...

Had time for a quick post match drink, then took a trip to the hospital to get it sorted...

Not sure whether anyone else has any damaged finger/toe stories and whether it hurt?

Sam Burgess big tackles on Ben Jacobs plus first try for Bath

Yeh, I'd agree with that.

I wonder how the 6N is going to play out, Wales v England first.. with Wales coming off the back of a big win against SA. Although that's 1 out of many..

French rugby shows solidarity after Charlie Hedbo terror attacks in Paris

Yeh true. I think it's easier to keep all of our 'friendships' down to a rugby level, otherwise things will continue to rear their ugly heads in the future.

A look at the Top International Try Scorers of 2014

Really nice to see some of the 'smaller' nations in the rugby world getting some attention :)

Julian Savea, bloody hell, bloke just seems to have so much going for him on the rugby front! Brilliant to see!

I think the problem is largely the fact that you have a few 'randoms' you can throw into the mix. The likes of Tuilagi, if he is fit and isn't played and England lose something, the halfwit media will wonder why 'the big cannonball' wasn't played... because that's just what rugby is isn't it?? Big guys running at bigs guys? The team with the bigger guys will win? - Yes media, go back to football please...

French rugby shows solidarity after Charlie Hedbo terror attacks in Paris

Wish people could just keep their hands to themselves...

I dunno, don't get me wrong, the reprints were a heck of a middle finger reaction, but it sort of makes things difficult to come on here and say "if people just left each other alone then...blahblah"...

I suspect the lack of comments on here are to do with the majority of people wishing to stay out of politics on here... I've watched for days at the '2 comments' bit and seeing Colombes comment really makes me think that people need to put differences aside.

Charlie Hebdo has a habit of attracting controversy - perhaps in the same manner as South park, I guess it's all kind of funny until they pick on your problem/religion/following/lifestyle etc... but I suppose if you can sit back and chuckle at the stereotypes of it all then maybe that is the key...

Depictions of Muhammad? Aren't all photographs or drawings of male muslims 'depictions of Muhammad' - Don't the majority (if not all?) of them carry the name Muhammad? Granted I'm no lawyer and would rather not get into technicalities with a bunch of gun toting lunatics, but you know... thinking about stuff might help more..

I suppose no one is 'holier than thou' so we'll all do something that pisses someone else off... I suppose the majority of reactions we face are just words...and more on the pitch... but mainly words...
